West Michigan will have a mostly cloudy sky with a low cloud deck and foggy conditions. Reduced visibility can be seen at any point heading into Monday. Monday afternoon, we can see some dry time before more scattered showers push back in late Monday evening.

The National Weather Service office in Grand Rapids just issued a dense fog advisory for Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, Kalamazoo, and Van Buren counties until 7:00 a.m. Monday.

Expect visibilities of 1/4 mile or less at times in these areas.

Temperatures remain well above average working back into the lower 40s.


Overall fthrough Monday expect about an inch to an inch and a half of rainfall across West Michigan. Steady rain will start to push in overnight Sunday into Monday morning and stay in the area with some heavy rainfall at times.

Once we get on the back edge of the system colder air will wrap around bringing snow shower chances for Tuesday.

Looking ahead, West Michigan will see temperatures dip during the middle of the week before mild air more on January standards moves back in by the end of the week. Partly to mostly sunny skies will return during the second half of the work week.
